Q I’m hoping you can help me regarding an article in 4WHEEL DRIVE & Sport Utility Magazine from the June 2011 issue. The article titled “Sleeper” covering the buildup of the Jeep JK features an install of a Currie heat sink–style cooler for the power steering fluid. Its shown mounted on the front lower crossmember, just rear of the radiator. I’m aware that the Currie mounting hardware was used, the U-bolts and brackets, but could you please tell me how Currie’s hardware was mounted to the tube-style crossmember itself? Thanks for your help.

A Mike, the Sleeper JK was a great build that could be carried out by anyone. It featured an incredible selection of parts and worked really well on the trail and everywhere else (and still does). The included mounting hardware was indeed used to mount the Currie power steering cooler to the front lower crossmember. The flat bracket was welded on to the crossmember, and the U-bolts and nuts were then used to secure the cooler in place. Thanks for writing. ’Wheel on.

Editor in Chief Phil Howell’s 2011 Sleeper two-door JK featured a heat sink–style power steering cooler from Currie Enterprises. The cooler includes mounting hardware that can be welded to the JK’s tubular front lower crossmember. It can be used for either power-steering or automatic-transmission applications. To find articles about this build, go to and enter “sleeper” in the search box.
